Why are there so many F-Secure ads when watching YouTube?

This discussion has a more recent version.

Issue:

I am trying to watch a YouTube video. I am constantly seeing F-Secure ads. Do I need to change my anti-virus software due to this?

Resolution:

The ads you see on YouTube are generally tailored for you based on your internet behavior (cookies & third-party tracking). For example, if you search for anti-virus products and visit those websites you are likely to have F-Secure ads - even on YouTube.

F-Secure FREEDOME blocks unwanted third-party tracking and malicious sites. This will also stop advertisers from making money at the expense of your privacy:
